One of my goals this year was to be more intentional with photos of the groom. Yes, most of my time is spent communicating with the bride and I do spend most of my day with her on the wedding day. However, it’s the groom’s day too! And I know that from our wedding, I love the photos we have of JUST Ben. And I know that my brides appreciate photos of their men, especially all dressed up and anticipating the adventure they’re about to embark on.
There are lots of favorites from this past year and those blog posts will be coming before the end of the month!
But I had to share these of Will and Jill from our styled shoot we did several months ago. I’m hoping to get the entire shoot featured on another blog but I wanted to share some of the film scans from that day. These were taken with your basic Kodak 800 speed film with my 35mm Nikon N50… in other words, nothing fancy. I wouldn’t be able to use that film or the camera on a wedding day because the quality isn’t what I would want or need it to be, but it was still so much fun to pull out that trusty little camera that has been around the world with me over the past 20 years. It had been too long since it had been used and it was so much fun to hear the film rolling with each click of the shutter.
Even though these two have been married for several years and they’re expecting their first baby in the spring, I loved having them in front of my camera dressed as a bride and groom for the day. Besides, Will NAILED this portrait on the right.
